My ggrandparents began a homestead in Pawnee Co. just prior to the 1900 census during a landrush.
John White MYERS and a son went to claim homesteads and the rest of John's family followed when
the homes were established. They had been over in Eastern Kansas a few years coming from IND.
and before that OHIO where John White MYERS was born 1846 (Ross Co). His wife, Sarah Belle Myers
also born in OHIO. Two sons were Lewis MYERS and Perry Cale MYERS. John White MYERS and another
man, Mr. CLARK started a freight line from Pawnee to Red Rock. John died in 1917 is buried in
Highland Cemetery; his wife died 1912 and is buried in Highland Cemetery. His son, Lewis MYERS
was killed in a construction accident in 1903--a cave-in of dirt while building the county bridge
over Camp Creek, 7 miles east of Pawnee. Would I be able to find anything out about the freight
line business? Did they have business licenses in the early 1900's? How can I find the location
of the homesteads? Any help would be much appreciated.

PEARL, daughter BERTHA were counted in the Pawnee County U.S. Census of 1910. By that time, my
grandfather had moved to California. I'm looking for any living descendants of JOHN D. I've been
researching JOHN and VICTOR'S parents, FRANK and ELIZABETH MYERS MCFARLAND (also spelled
MCFARLIN) and am having difficulty linking to FRANK'S father, who I think was BENJAMIN MCFARLIN.

Susan McDowell - 09/28/98
My husbands Great Grandparents met at the 101 ranch in Pawnee County, Oklahoma their names
were Mary Elizabeth (Herd) McDowell that came from Missouri and John William McDowell that came
from Kentucky. They must have married somewhere around there, because they didn't come to
Woodward co. until their second son was born, Charles Osa McDowell, born on the Cherokee Strip,
between Pawnee and Woodward co. Also I might add Mary Elizabeth (Herd) McDowell was a cook on
the 101 ranch when they met. This would have been before 1896. Also her father's name was John
Frances Herd, and he was known as a horse trainer, he broke horses. He lost the bottom part of
his arm when a train ran over it. If anyone has any information, about any of the people that
worked on the 101 ranch near Ponca City in Pawnee County, please let me know.
Tim Sandberg - 10/19/98
My name is Tim Sandberg; My recently deceased mother was Cynthia Edith Floyer. Since her death, I have become very
interested in the family genealogy, and have been doing extensive research on the Internet. There is actually a wealth of
information on the Floyer family. They are an ancient Saxon family dating back at least as far as 1086. I have extensive
documentation back as far as William Floyer of Floyer's Hayse, Exeter, who died in 1579. While searching for "Floyer" on
Yahoo, Terlton Cemetary, Pawnee County, Oklahoma Came up. There is a Rachel Lu Ann Floyer, died 1975, daughter of Todd and
Marylin Floyer, buried there. The American branch of the Floyer family is completely unknown to my relatives in England, and
I would be interested in re-establishing contact. The American branch of the family has been lost for some 300 years.

My gggrandfather Alfred W. tisdale came to Blackburn, OK. with brothers Lon, Jay and John and made the "run" on horseback.
Lon was the only one to get a place. Alfred(I believe) was the first farmer to rais cotton in Pawnee County. His farm was
south of Blackburn and he reportedly paid $1,000 for it (lots of money at the time). He was a good carpenter and helped
build the old log schoolhouse in East Bend, plus many of the benches and desks. Each parent at the time paid $1 per month
toward the teachers salary. there were 35 students in 1895. Alfred served as a juror many times in Pawnee. He was an
outdoorsman and hunted deer and wild turkey in "indian territory." He died of cancer November 4, 1901 at his home in
Blackburn, funeral services were held in the yard by Rev. Ingerham(?). Believe he is buried at the Blackburn cemetery, along
with many other Tisdales. The following Tisdales were born in Pawnee County: Sylvia Ethel July 20, 1897 Fairy Pearl June 28,
1900 Tessie Opal April 17, 1904 and Wyatt Wayne in Osage County September 20, 1906. I would like to know how to get
confirmation of any of the above as I am trying to qualify as a descendant of the first settlers.
